Note: There is a $10.00 drop fee for each course dropped.

S - This grade is given primarily for credit through “Prior Learning Assessment and Alternative studies.” It reflects hours being earned toward graduation but has no bearing on the Student’s Grade Point Average (GPA).

I - Indicates that additional work must be done to receive a passing grade for the course or program.

N - This grade may be given to those who are not taking the course for credit. This grade may be changed to a standard letter grade if the appropriate additional fees are paid and all work for the course completed.

WP - This indicates that the student has officially withdrawn from a course and was passing at the time of withdrawal. A “WP” is not calculated as part of the student’s Grade Point average (GPA).

WF - This indicates that the student was officially withdrawn from a course and was failing at the time of withdrawal. No refund will be given for a WF.

    B         80 - 89
    C         70 - 79

Comments & News

I am feeling very blessed to have met Dr. Max Flynn and Covenant Theological Seminary. I got a big surprise to find I had enough credits and life experience to almost get an associates degree when I first enrolled in May 2008. I was overwhelmed to be able to graduate with my Associates from Covenant Theological Seminary and my Bachelor's degree in Ministry. At that point I decided to take time out from school, but I missed the ministry times and the excitement of learning hands on ministry so much, I enrolled again last year. Soon I'll graduate with my Master's degree in Ministry. I'm looking forward to being a Facilitator for the school. It's truly one of a kind when you compare schools. My husband audited a class and received healing from TIAs (mini-strokes) during class time.  I'm grateful for what it means to my spiritual growth and well being.
